• Longer lifespan than electrolytic capacitors • Endurable to operation under higher frequency & temperature • Avoid exploding capacitors to cause mainboards failure
• A choke is an inductor responsible for storing power and regulates the current. • All shielded choke could reduce core power loss, lower EMI interference. • Store energy longer at higher frequency, achieving higher efficiency.
• Easy connect to front panel & chassis cable • 2x USB, IEEE 1394, front panel (JFP1/2)& audio(JAUD1) M-connector in the package • Easy to tell the definition of each pin
• Functions designed with button to be easy use. • Help power-users tweaking process in-chasis enviornment • Onboard SATA ports are stacked on the mainboard to avoid mechanical issue with giant graphic cards like 8800 Ultra.

I bought this for my gaming rig and it has performed excellent, it has lots of room for me to put another GPU and lots of features. I added 2 40mm fans to the NB because i like to keep things cool.
This is my second build with MSI boards and I have to say I'm really impressed so far. This particular board is a steal at the price they're asking right now. Older chipset but still a great gaming board. Snap them up while you can, at this price they won't last.
Very nice motherboard that I would recommend to everyone. The only complaint I have is that it comes with an older version of the bios not compatible with amd phenom 2 x6 (and NCIX sells it in a bundle deal with this card...). So you have to upgrade the bios. Once you know this is the problem, it is pretty easy to do, but you first have to figure out why your cpu is sooo slow. At least, NCIX should include a notice saying that the bios will need to be upgraded.
Appart from that, excellent motherboard, plenty of options for the price, I don't think you can find a better deal right now.
Great motherboard for the price. It worked great out of the box except for the recognition of a x6 AMD processor.
It needed a BIOS upgrade to recognize the 1055t cpu. The bios update was incredibly easy to do. All you have to do is hop onto msi website, download the newest bios. Extract the files to a fat32 usb drive. Restart your pc, go into bios. Then there is an option to update the bios from usb. Presto, worked like a charm.
i bought this mother board to build a comp. i'm pretty happy of my purchase! i run a amd 965 x4 ocz 2x2 gb 1333 msi geforce gtx 460 728mb ocz modxstream pro 600w 300 antec case plus 3 coolermaster green led 120mm seagate barracuda 1tb samsung 22x burner. it runs so good so far. buy it on sale!
I will pass on that although MSI says this will run at 2000+ the bios is set at 1:4 which is 1600 mhz max. Maybe when version 1.5 comes out this will change. The crosshair 3 is the same way. 1600 down to 1066 ddr3 dual channel work best. This is a great board when setup right. Much smoother than the I7 rigs that are 2 arms and 3 legs.
Overall a fantastic board. This thing is loaded with features and it came with the newest bios installed. It worked with the 965BE G.skill ram and 2x4890's straight out of the box. I would have liked USB 3 and Sata 3 but its not available yet with 4 pci-e so I got this and I am very happy.
